We are also Women
who are facing life's
Ever Evolving Challenges
Challenges that are sometimes easy peasy, but other times, they are hard, demanding, disappointing, and on occasion, damn near impossible. Challenges that have us considering grabbing our passport so that we can purchase a single, one-way to ticket to anywhere, but here.
Yet, In Spite of All of That, We Don’t Quit.
With Weathered Hands and Beaten Knuckles, We Hang On.
After the tears, fears and frustration subside,
we somehow manage
to keep it moving
We face our obstacles with grit and determination. We leap over hurdles, sometimes stumbling, even falling, but we always get back up. We pull our super hero capes from the bottom and the back of our closets. We shake the dust off, sling them around our shoulders, snap the collar, hold our heads up, wipe a tear or two away, take a deep breath, and up, up, and away we go. We might get scraped and bruised during take-off and turbulence may even rattle us, but as Maya Angelo said,
Still We Rise
Our Challenges are our Stepping Stones
NOT OUR RETAINING WALLS
And for our No Ma’amers that can’t seem to find their cape. We want you to keep looking, it hasn’t disappeared. It’s still there. It may be pushed to the side or tightly tucked under a pile of stuff. Stuff like bills, divorce, deaths, poor health, ailing parents, and other disappointments.
Hell, you may not even recognize
your cape anymore because it’s
so worn and battered;
but it’s still a cape and it’s still there. Just keep looking. And if the pile seems too high, don’t be discouraged, ask for help. Sometimes, one set of hands won’t do. Your family, friends, therapist, and/or spiritual advisors are there to dig with you. Just know and believe, that you too have a cape and it’s still there.
HeyThere I'm Mari
and I created
I created this group to connect with other cool women managing life and all the stuff that comes with it. I hope you find this content engaging, useful, and a lot of fun.
I Wear a Dusty Cape
BUT I DON'T CARRY A MAGIC WAND
My journey is riddled with more bumps and lumps than I’d like to mention.
I make mistakes and sometimes
I’m just wrong.
So folks, don’t be surprised when “it” happens, cause it’s gonna happen. I’m human. I do promise to provide you with beneficial and useful information. I promise to stay true to myself and to you. I promise to make No Ma'am and all that comes with it, engaging, educational, useful, and as fun as I can.
Through our FB Lives, free content, seminars, our paid online training, brunches, retreats or other useful resources, we are here to ride with you. We will explore a variety of topics and feature experts in areas of caring for aging parents, managing finances, how to launch your own business, insurance, dating, health and wellness, starting over, and much, much more.
Yep, We sell stuff. We gotta eat too!
Pretty much everything we offer is free, but some things aren't. That range extends from apparel and training to brunches retreats, conferences and other events.
All of which are designed to bring a smile to our face and push/pull you into what we call the
Encouragement, Enlightenment, Entertainment
We know for sure that information coupled with inspiration, and entertainment is not only motivational
but together all can assist in the learning and transformation process. It's the dynamic trio!
